Jackson Public Schools
Jackson Public Schools require that have a signed copy of your lease agreement to enroll a child in school. This information can be found on the JPS website. We will provide you a copy of your signed lease contract on the day you move in. If you would like to have this copy earlier to get a child enrolled, we will happily provide one to you, but you will need to pay your prorated rent on the day you pick up the copy, and you will not be given keys to your unit until the day the lease starts, and you move in.
